Firstly, we install the power supply, in this case the Antec True Power 650. As you can see, to place a fan on the base of the chassis would require some very efficient cable tidying especially with regards to the supply cables.
The next stage is to install the motherboard and CPU cooler and then the hard drives and optical drive. There is plenty of space around the motherboard for cable routing even though the cables we were using weren’t perfect for the job.
The space behind the motherboard tray was limiting and so we had to be careful in regards to how many cables we routed here, especially the thicker power supply cables. Due to all the cut-outs this was not too hard and the overall system build was fairly painfree.
